Iran's Sisangan Forest Park, Vivid, Dynamic
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - located along the Noshahr-Nour Road in the northern province of Mazandaran — was established in 1965 through untiring efforts of Saeed Ashtiani.
It is a no-hunting zone. There are many flora and fauna species in the park which is a unique habitat of box trees in the Middle East. There are beech trees as well as oak, linden and hornbeam trees.
The park has lots of facilities such as a permanent handicrafts exhibition and market, playground, horse-riding arena, cycling pist, four-wheelers, prayer hall and photographer’s studio.
It is somehow a dynamic and vivid area.

There is an island in the middle of lake in which is the habitat for rabbits, eels and turtles.
The lake hosts many tourists particularly in springs and summers.
